Our residency program provides opportunities to train in a variety of inpatient and ambulatory settings. The patient population is culturally rich and drawn mainly from Monterey County. Most of our patients are Latino, and many work in agriculture; they are friendly, family-oriented, humble, grateful people who are wonderful to care for and learn from. Our residents are as diverse as the patients they serve and include a former firefighter, a former flight attendant, and many with international service experiences. Most come to Natividad with an interest in obstetrics and pediatrics and a dedication to the underserved and disadvantaged. A number of residents have completed graduate degrees in Public Health, Education, or Business, and several are recipients of National Health Service Corps Scholarships. Program graduates have gone on to become leaders in community and academic medicine locally, across the country, and abroad.
